Straily (2-2) struck out 11 Dodgers while allowing only three hits, a walk and a hit batsman over seven frames Wednesday, but was stuck with three runs and a loss.

Competitive Edge Analysis

You could hardly ask for better WHIP from him, but the Dodgers' one rally and a Yasmani Grandal solo homer put enough runs on Straily's line to send him to the loss column. A strikeout king in the minors, Straily now owns 52 whiffs in 54.1 innings this year to go with his shiny 2.98 ERA. That said, it's surprising that the Reds and their hitter-friendly ballpark have been so kind to the 27-year-old righty, and indeed the peripherals (like his 4.19 FIP on the shoulders of a .225 BABIP) say he's in for some regression.

Straily allowed just one run on four hits, walking three and striking out five over six innings, coming away with a no-decision against Seattle on Friday night.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Straily (2-1) turned in a quality performance although he walked three and hit a couple of batters. Unfortunately, despite leaving with a 3-1 lead, he watched the awful Reds' bullpen melt down yet again - they allowed seven runs over the last three innings of the contest. He'll face the Dodgers in Los Angeles next time out, but he and all the Cincinnati starters are finding that no lead is safe with their train wreck pen.

Straily (2-1) allowed no runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings to earn the win Sunday at the Phillies.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Straily gave up plenty of baserunners, but was able to keep them from scoring, and the offense came up with seven early runs to get him the victory. He's yet to allow more than three runs in any of his six starts, and he boasts a 3.05 ERA along with a 1.21 WHIP. He'll make his next start Friday against the Mariners.

Straily held the Pirates to two runs in six innings on Monday in a no-decision. He allowed four hits, walked three, and struck out four.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Straily has settled into a nice groove of late, allowing eight runs in 18.1 innings over his last three starts. The righty has had a problem with walks lately however, walking 11 in his last four outings. Straily's next start will come Sunday in Philadelphia against the Phillies.

Straily (1-1) allowed three runs on six hits, walking two and striking out four over 6.1 innings in a 7-4 victory against the Giants on Wednesday afternoon.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The right-hander allowed two home runs, but overall, he looked good, throwing 72 of his 112 pitches for strikes. It helped that both homers he allowed were solo shots. Straily has yielded five bombs this season, but if he continues to throw this many strikes, he should remain in the Reds starting rotation. His next scheduled start is Monday against the Pirates.

Straily allowed two runs on five hits, walking three and strikig out five over six innings of a 4-0 loss to the Pirates on Friday night.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Straily (0-1) gave the Reds some much needed quality innings, but he ran into a tough opponent in Juan Nicasio who combined with three relievers to notch the shutout. Straily is still stretching out, tossing 91 pitches (56 for strikes), but with a 3.38 ERA, he has likely earned himself a regular turn in the rotation - at least as long as he can contribute. He'll get the Giants at home in his next start.

Straily couldn't make it out of the fifth inning Saturday against the Cubs, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks through 4.2 innings, striking out five.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Reds rallied in the sixth inning to let Straily off the hook. He needed 97 pitches to get through the outing. If Straily doesn't get skipped for his next start (the Reds have an off-day on Thursday that coincides with his turn in the rotation), he would next pitch at Pittsburgh.

Straily got a no-decision Monday against the Rockies, going five innings of one-run ball in his first start of the season. He allowed two hits while striking out four and walking two.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Straily was limited to just 76 pitches in the start, but should have a longer leash the next time he takes the mound. Straily has pitched well out of the bullpen this year, striking out eight in 8.1 innings, but he hans't held down a starting job since 2013. For now, Straily will get another start Saturday against John Lackey and the Cubs.

Straily will start Monday's series opener against the Rockies, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The rumors have thus come to fruition, as Straily replaces Tim Melville in the rotation, at least for the time being. In three relief appearances this season, Straily has given up three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out eight in 8.1 innings.

The Reds are considering moving Straily into the Reds starting rotation, replacing Tim Melville.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Straily has been employed as the Reds' long reliever and has provided mostly good returns. At the very least, he has more upside than Melville.
